Is the current field of view in Mass Effect Legendary Edition just too constrained for you? Well, don’t worry. As ever, modders have come to the rescue.
Mass Effect Legendary Edition launched last Friday and brings the trilogy to the newer consoles and, of course, to the PC. The remaster features several improvements and upgrades over the original three games such as better textures, controller support for PC, and more.
On PS5 and Xbox Series X, the game is targeting 60fps at 4K, and between 60-120fps at 1440p,
“Mass Effect Legendary Edition provides fans and new players with the ability to experience the incredible universe and dynamic cast of characters in Mass Effect with enhanced visuals like never before. Remastered character models, tens of thousands of up-ressed textures, shaders and VFX, updated lighting and improved dynamic shadows, volumetrics and depth-of-field combined add to a new level of immersion in the trilogy."
However, the PC version isn’t up to modern expectations in some facets like FOV. As always, mod games at your own risk yadda yadda. However, having personally tried this mod, I can say that it’s quite simple to install and it actually does what it says on the tin. The mod in question is called Better Camera (Higher FOV) by author JadeBarker and can be found over on the Nexus. All hail Nexus Mods!
The mod contains files available for all three remastered games, and provides detailed instructions as to where you should install each file. It’s pretty straightforward, and in my own personal experience, works as advertised. If you’re playing the game on a monitor, definitely give this mod a look.
Stay tuned for our review of Mass Effect Legendary Edition.
